Why Green Tea? Take a look at the health benefits of Green Tea
Green tea is a popular beverage known for its unique flavour and health benefits. It is high in antioxidants and is believed to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. It is also known to boost metabolism, aid in weight loss, and improve brain function.
There are many varieties of green tea, each with its unique flavour and aroma, making it a versatile and enjoyable beverage for tea lovers worldwide.
Green tea has a lot of healthy bioactive compounds like polyphenols, which are anti-inflammatory. They also have catechins for antioxidants which protect the body from oxidative stress and damage from free radicals. This helps the body fight against different kinds of diseases.
The hot drink is refreshing to the mind and body. It is said to improve brain function and give you a boost. It has lesser caffeine than coffee and another brain-boosting compound called L-theanine. This compound induces dopamine secretion and also has anti-anxiety effects.
Less amounts of caffeine and the presence of L-theanine lead to a milder jolt than what you would get from coffee. Nevertheless, it wakes you up.
Some researches support the claims of green tea’s role in weight loss. Studies show increased fat metabolism up to 17% in some individuals whereas no effects in others. So it could possibly depend on the individual, their body type and other physiological factors. It definitely wouldn’t hurt to try.
Other beneficial effects are on your blood sugar levels and cardiovascular health. Green teas may not protect you against them but they definitely do not worsen or precipitate these conditions either. Without milk and sugar in them, these are the best choices for hot drinks in patients with type-2 diabetes and health conditions.
